© The Whitney
The Whitney serves acclaimed menus of new American cuisine that includes tantalizing entrées from the land, sea or garden accompanied by fine wines from the famous wine cellar and other libations. Brunch, dinner and dessert menus are available, and guests can dine in the music room, the parlor or the library on the first floor, each of which offers a different aesthetic experience. Most of the rooms in the house have been converted into dining spaces of various sizes with many old-style design details from the 1890s still present, such as massive pocket doors, a back staircase, oversized shelves, and a locked vault behind a fake wall on the first floor.
The daytime menus offer contemporary American fare from shrimp cocktail appetizers to Gold Brick sundaes for dessert. Entrées range from classic burgers and fries to more elaborate selections such as a filet mignon and lobster tail, served by courteous, efficient and well-dressed staff. Brunch offerings include traditional eggs Benedict and seasonal omelets, as well as freshly prepared salads and sandwiches and a range of entrées, such as chicken and wild rice, shrimp scampi, sauteed Michigan whitefish and sliced tenderloin in mushroom sauce. Desserts are to die for with miniature pastries, carrot cake or a vintage Gold Brick Sundae just a few of the mouthwatering options.
Guests can enjoy The Whitney in a variety of ways from lazy brunches and private functions to romantic evening dinners and snacks and drinks at the Ghost Bar on the third floor. The Whitney is open seven days a week from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm with Sunday brunches served between 10:30 am and 2:30 pm. Traditional high tea is served daily at 2:00 pm and The Ghost Bar opens at 5:00 pm every day, Monday through Saturday.
The Whitney host a variety of events and functions throughout the year, including a Paranormal Dinner/Tour, an Annual Spring Fling, an Easter Brunch and Dinner, and Garden Parties.
